"I am a consultant that has hired many graphic designers for some challenging projects. I was put into contact with Max for a last minute job not realizing Max would knock it out of the park with incredible professional talent. Not only was their work exceptional, but their communication throughout the process in coordinating with my client’s needs and edits was some of the best I have ever experienced. I went from thinking I would hire Max for a job or two to now making them my dedicated #1 graphic designer for all work large and small for my clients."

"Max did an excellent job creating a new website for my company. Their design fit perfectly with the lake life brand and will be eye-catching for my past and future customers. Not only did their design capture exactly what I was asking for, but theu successfully completed technical website tasks that I have been struggling with for years. I am thrilled with my new site and look forward to not only getting consumers on the water to paddle board, but also giving them the opportunity to take the lake life home with them with the new online merchandise purchasing options. Thanks Max!"

"It is with much enthusiasm that I highly recommend Max Bulver. I am Max’s advisor and instructor within the Interactive Media department’s User Experience Design major. I have worked with Max through multiple Interactive Media classes during years at Bradley University. In our classes, Max has displayed a level of creativity, wit, analytical thought, and drive. Additionally, their willingness to support and be involved in the University are admirable. Their leadership and professional skills are truly phenomenal – particularly when presenting and communicating with the real-world client projects I conduct in the classroom. Max is always ready to assume and excel in classwork and possesses the self-motivation to create and execute independent efforts outside of their classes successfully. They have a very special spark, and I trust they will go far and make Bradley University proud."

"Max is a dedicated, passionate, and creative designer whom I had the pleasure of mentoring during my time at Bradley University. Their drive to improve their skills in graphic design put me in awe. These past two years I have seen them grow into a spectacular Graphic Designer and UI/UX Designer. They have applied both design skills to social media marketing and successfully assisted in transforming the brand of the ACBU Instagram page and grow their following. Also, their professionalism and work ethic is astounding. They have strong time-management skills and can balance multiple projects at a time and complete them in a timely matter. I am excited to see where their professional career will take them because I know for a fact Max will be a valuable colleague for any industry."
